As mentioned in my other review of this shoe, I was very grateful to have read others' reviews that said it ran big: it runs very big. I first ordered a 10W; am normally a solid 11 (and have had to send some 11s back for being too short!). I have to wear 2 pairs of socks with the 10W, so I reordered when I got the chance, a 10M. They're still pretty big, and plenty wide enough, with one pair of socks.
This shoe has really thick, strong leather. The heel is too big for me, but having the strap right near the ankle makes that OK: I can just pull it tighter. The shoe has plenty of support and is well made; should last a long time.
I must say it isn't terribly stylish, so if that's an issue for you I'd suggest looking elsewhere.
